I'll keep it short and sweet, and I want to hear your thoughts. 1) Allow all house types to be placed on all plots. Therefore you can have a village of all cottages or all villas for example. 2) Allow houses to be upgraded. If you have a cottage, a long term goal can be upgrade to a house or villa. 3) Lower cottage costs to be more entry level. 4) Add many more plots. I've said it from the beginning, but this system is just terrible. As it stands right now, by the time any casual player can hope to get the mats for a cottage, all the cottage slots will be consumed. They have no choice but to grind even more for a higher level house. I see no reason that cottages shouldn't be the pretty easily available house for even casual players, and that the long term goal would be upgrading, improving, adding upon your cottage into something greater. Obviously they wouldn't get the best locations which is perfectly fine, but the system right now is just so incredibly off-putting. I think BPG is really missing out on the fact that players really enjoy owning their own property, especially the casuals who may never experience owning a hamlet or city. Owning your own slice of agon and making it your own is a huge opportunity to keep people hooked. Hell I logged into DAoC for months after I had "quit" to make sure I kept my house going.
